Several years ago when I thought I would try my hand at a five string, I purchased an Ibanez SR1205. All in all not a bad instrument. The string spacing was tight, but the neck through construction was done nicely as well as the fret work. Once I realized I could actually play it, I figured it was time to upgrade the electronics. After all, the bass did sound quite nice unplugged. I removed the pickups as well as the pre amp and replaced them with EMG soapbars (P/J pattern) with a BTS preamp. (18 volt) Even though it soon was moved to a back up bass for higher end fivers, I kept it as a spare for all these yrs. Well now I have decided to sell it and get a Lakland 5502 for my backup. My question is this: should I return the bass to it's original form and sell electronics separately, or sell it as is?
